(UPDATED: Episode Description Added) The day we’ve been waiting for is coming: Erica Durance is making her directorial debut with next week’s episode “Torn and Frayed” (4.16) and she’s excited about the challenge, “I’m excited about the prospect of directing. It gives you another perspective into the production and it requires a lot of preparation outside of being a lead actor.”
In an attempt to bring some normalcy to his increasingly chaotic life, Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) decides to go the entire day without using his “special abilities.” His vow is put to the test, however, when a superstitious farmer is admitted with a myriad of injuries, forcing Charlie to re-evaluate his decision. Meanwhile, fearing for Dr. Dana Kinney’s (Wendy Crewson) outlook when she is confined to the hospital by her oncologist, Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance) organizes a road trip north to Dana’s cabin for the annual cottage festival. With Dr. Dawn Bell’s (Michelle Nolden) college roommate Reba’s (Kristen Thomson, Away From Her) life on the line after being bitten by a spider, it is Dr. Zach Miller (Benjamin Ayres) who helps keep the situation under control. Directed by Gregory Smith (ROOKIE BLUE, ARROW).
“Saving Hope” airs Thursdays in a new timeslot, 10/9c PM on CTV.
